    Just thought I'd say "Welcome back" after the little Easter break? the forum's had :D :D

    Any way, hey dealer, I was asking around and apparently your little problem (no Admin without Safe) can be cured by downloading and installing a little programme called "TweakUI".

    It does the same as my reg tweak but also gives you ACCESS to the Administrator. :D

    welcome back to you too dirk, hope holidays were good to you, also hope you got a chance to see QUEEN MUM one more time...also thanx for this info, when I do it, I'll do a registry comparison, and send you the registry changes for your files. Is your reformat final, or a quickie?

    Hi dealer,
    apparently it has to be "TweakUi XP" from the "XP Power Toys". I can only assume that yours isn't the XP variety.

    Hi NetMike68,
    we are always happy to help ClickMe :D

    hi dirk, btw, I am almost possitive that plugin is not available on any tweak program, you do know everyone has read that other string, surely, if it was available, that would have been pointed out, I think that's another good reason to work this out, if it's possible, as you'd be responsible for all the plug ins that would surely follow, once you made the discovery.:cool:

    On the ball as always eh allan, does anything pass you by:)

    dealer is your Winlogon similar to this:-

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
    "DefaultDomainName"="(The name you gave the computer)"
    "DefaultUserName"="Dirk Diggler"
    "ShutdownWithoutLogon"="0"
    "System"=""
    "cachedlogonscount"="0"
    "forceunlocklogon"=dword:00000000
    "LogonType"=dword:00000000
    "ShowLogonOptions"=dword:00000000
    "AltDefaultUserName"="Dirk Diggler"
    "AltDefaultDomainName"="(The name you gave the computer)"
    "AutoAdminLogon"="1"

    I just saved this as a paste...(believe it or not, on that very same document with an infinate cursor)...tonight, I'll check, make the changes, and let you know tomorrow

    Hey dealer,
    don't make any changes, I'm just trying to get the whole picture, but in bits. Its obviously gonna be a combination of numerous registry entries, so changing just one or two isn't gonna help and could hurt.

    P.S.
    I noticed a few more of our people surfing these forums. Is there some kind of exodus going on.
    :D

    too late dirk, but there was only one differance, cached log on count, changed that

    now get this....when I was done, there the administrator was again, on my user accounts list, I went in to log on, tried the administrator again, again, I windows said I was not worthy,

    AND THEN THE ADMINISTRATOR WAS GONE FROM MY USER ACCOUNTS ! ! !

    WE
    e should try to meet in chat, and I'll try to send my keys to you there...if so, que hora ?

    Hey dealer,
    I just downloaded and had a look at TweakUi and I found the area that should enable you to Logon as Admin.
    If you untick "Log on automatically..." and have "Administrator" as a user Name, this should give you the option your looking for, at least I think it will.

    ha, I love those one word posts, and I would have left my last be backpost alone, but something occured to me....with what you just posted, I get the same "......account restriction" admonition, so, maybe you can find the registry fujism (a word I just made up) for that account restriction....I'm going to restart now, and get the exact fujism, so you can have a go with it....be right back

    ok...this is the exact fujism;

    "unable to log on because of an account restriction"



    fujism=the same thing as a wild card in poker, it replaces any word that is not available at the moment, or just doesn't exist
